One of my films- Life of Snobs has been selected to appear in the Chester International Film Festival. Absolutely thrilled to bits!
I’ve realised that in a year I’ve worked on a total 12 different animated shorts! It’s been one of the most exciting, interesting and challenging experiences of my life and with some minor exceptions, I’ve loved every moment of it.
Of course I realise that next year, my focus will have to be more targeted. I need me an audience and if you’re someone who doesn’t make loads of film or game parodies like me, it’s a lot harder to get noticed on Youtube.
At the same time, I don’t really want to blindly chase after that kind of viewer dollar just because it’s there. I don’t want to become successful doing something I hate.
Incidentally, please don’t think I don’t enjoy parodies- I do very much. In fact, many of the channels I subscribe to on Youtube MAINLY make parodies or references to other media, frequently. I’ve just got to figure out a way I can keep both parts of my own artistic brain happy- the arty, bloody minded side and the ‘MAKE ‘EM LAFF!’ side.
Here’s to 2014 and another fun year of artistic discovery!
